[ cheers and applause ] in a related story the recession is over! we did it! captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." it is a confession that many in the sports world never expected to hear. cbs news has confirmed that on monday, lance armstrong admitted
7:02 am
doping while he was winning the tour de france seven times. >> changing his story could have severe consequences for armstrong. chip reid is at the justice department in washington. chip good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah and good morning to our viewers out west. lance armstrong is already being sued by a former teammate for allegedly defrauding the federal government of millions of dollars when he rode for the u.s. postal service team. now cbs news learns that senior officials here at the justice department have recommended that the federal government join that lawsuit. lance armstrong's years of denial came to an end monday in an emotional interview with oprah winfrey. >> lance armstrong is on the course! >> reporter: cbs news learned the former cycling star confessed to winfrey what many already speculated that he used performance-enhancing drugs. the lengthy sitdown took place in the four seasons hotel in austin texas, where armstrong was joined by close friends and
7:03 am
lawyers. afterwards oprah tweeted "just wrapped with lance armstrong, he came ready." he spent the better part of his career fighting back against doping allegations. >> we have nothing to hide. >> reporter: the pressure mounted in may 2011 when scott pelley talked to tyler hamilton about the blood boosting drug epo. >> you saw lance armstrong inject epo? >> yes, like we all did. like i did many many times. >> reporter: and last year the u.s. anti-doping agency issued a scathing report accusing armstrong of masterminding a sophisticated conspiracy roping teammates into his drug use and threatening anyone who stood in his way. just last week pelley spoke to the head of the anti-doping agency on "60 minutes sports."

travis tygart. >> it's tough, all of them were scared of the repercussions of simply telling the truth. >> what could lance armstrong do to them? >> insin rate them. >> reporter: following the report jorm strange was stripped of his seven tour de france titles, banned from competing and cut off by most of his sponsors. ahead of his interview he apologized to staff members at the livestrong cancer charity he founded but many long time fans feel betrayed. >> we watched him win seven times and we all just stood in amazement and now to find out that it was based on lies, you know, it hurts all of us. >> reporter: cbs news has learned that armstrong is now in talks about returning some of the millions of dollars he earned while riding for the u.s. postal service team and he is also showing a willingness to testify against others. charlie and norah? >> chip reid thanks. cbs news legal analyst jack ford joins us now. good morning. >> good morning. >> why did he do this and what did he put at risk?
7:05 am
>> good questions. you have to believe there were some significant battles going inside of his camp. public relations people probably saying you need to take control of the story, move forward, we're a forgiving nation. if you want to do things and resurrect your image you have to apologize and get out there. i have to believe his lawyers were saying that's a terrible idea because legally you're now exposing yourself to all sorts of civil suits and enormous amounts of money and even the possibility of the resurrection of the criminal investigation, remember the feds were investigating him and dropped it about a year ago. they never said why but that could also be out there. so i have to believe there was serious conflict going on in his camp. >> we talk about the timing it's my understanding the justice department deadline is thursday to join this suit and the full interview with oprah is airing on thursday. do you think that is what's driving lance armstrong to really do this interview, but also to negotiate with the justice department saying he may return some money and he's
7:06 am
willing to testify? >> i think it's a good question. all of those things are entering into it. the justice department put enormous pressure on them the whistle-blower lawsuit that got started by floyd landis if lance armstrong is admitting to doing this he's exposing himself to all sorts of money and the justice department will not be left out of that. they'll sign up and figure it out afterwards. all of these time frames i'm sure are moving this forward. the bottom line you'll see an awful lot of negotiation taking place between him and his representatives. >> tell us more about the criminal charges. >> announcer: that could be the wild card. his lawyer is quoted saying we - don't think that will be resurrected, the federal government looking into him for essentially fraud, its u.s. postal service was his sponsor, he indicated we're not using drugs in any way, shape or form. they got some $30 million from the postal service and the government was looking into whether or not there was fraudulent activity because they were using. the government dropped the investigation. they never articulated the
7:07 am
reason but if i'm his lawyer i'm more worried if he admits to doing this the federal government might take another hard look at this and say yes, civil suits but maybe there's a criminal prosecution on the horizon we have to look at. >> he has a very good legal team around him. >> good legal team and you have to believe they've thought this through and they have to figure out how best to get him out from underneath. >> thank you. coming up, oprah winfrey talks about her exclusive interview with armstrong right here only on "cbs this morning." and now to the debate over new gun laws one month after the newtown school massacre the new york legislature is about to pass the first new gun regulations of any state. final vote is set for today. at a white house news conference yesterday president obama talked about gun control and the national debt. major garrett is at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah and charlie. the president says he wants the gun debate to rise above politics. that's virtually impossible and
7:08 am
there are constitutional questions regarding gun control no lawmaker can ignore. for some parts the president's gun violence agenda which he'll discuss with the vice president in a couple of hours the president is looking at executive powers that do not require congressional consent. vice president biden told house democrats there were more than a dozen ways president obama could circumvent congress among the ideas, beefing up federal data collection on criminals with guns and the health care toll of gun violence. >> there are some steps that we can take that don't require legislation and that are within my authority as president. >> reporter: as parents of the children killed in newtown pleaded for new steps to reduce gun violence mr. obama conceded congress may reject his call to reinstate the assault weapons ban, on this and other proposals he put the burden on wavering lawmakers. >> we have to come up with answers that set politics aside. >> reporter: the president confronted his refusal to negotiate over an increase in the nation's $16.4 trillion debt
7:09 am
ceiling due to expire in mid to late february. the nation's debt increased $5.8 trillion on mr. obama's watch. he's raised it four times, three in negotiations with congress. doesn't that suggest that we are going to go into a default situation because no one is talking to each other about how to resolve this? >> the fact of the matter is that we have never seen the debt ceiling used in this fashion where the notion was, you no he what? we might default unless we get 100% of what we want. that hasn't happened. >> reporter: house republicans like utah's jason chaffetz say the president is going to have to negotiate or preside over default. >> the president has to realize that republicans believe strongly you can't keep spending money the country doesn't have. >> reporter: though the showdown is at least six weeks out the president spoke gloomily of an economy. >> the republican in congress have two choices, act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act
7:10 am
irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> reporter: house republicans say the issue isn't ransom but preservation. >> the growth of entitlements continues at a rapid pace we have to come to that realization and we have to quit spending money and try to cut into this deficit. >> reporter: house republicans see the debt ceiling deadline next month as one of the best ways early in the president's second term to force him to accept a new round of spending cuts and may have it on an incremental basis, one, two o three months and using that process to achieve more deficit reduction. >> former speaker of the house and republican presidential candidate newt gingrich. good morning mr. speaker. >> it's good to be with you. >> good to be with you. you say fighting over the debt ceiling is a bad idea for congressional republicans. why? >> because in the end it's a
7:11 am
threat they can't sustain. no one is going to default. no one is going to allow the united states to not pay its bills. no one is going to accept the economic costs. it rallies the entire business community to the president's side and the fact is republicans have two much bet ear renas to fight over spending they have a continuing resolution which funds government which comes up at the end of march and they have the sequester, which automatically cuts spending unless it's dealt with. those two fronts they can fight and they have much less resistance from the average american, and it's much harder for the president to oppose them. >> speaker boehner said yesterday that the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government spending at the same time. so do you disagree with speaker boehner? >> i think that if you get involved in a fight over the debt ceiling, and talking about defaulting which is what the
7:12 am
consequences if the president's truly stubborn the congress is truly stubborn you get a default. at that point the pressure in the congress becomes a dead loser. all these different groups come together and say you have to pass this. i don't think we should pick fights where we are in a position where we can't, in fact in the end force our will. we have no evidence that barack obama will compromise. nothing he's done in the last couple months would imply that he's going to compromise. >> therefore do you agree that the president is right no in the negotiating? >> no, i think the president's wrong but it's a fact. i think this president is deliberately seeking confrontation, i think he's going out of his way to bully the house republicans and i think the house republicans ought to pick the continuing resolution and the sequester, which are places where they're totally within their grounds. they don't have to pay for any of this -- >> what is your position on that, offer say to the president we will not do what unless you offer spending cuts or are we going to offer spending cuts and then you can deal with them? >> i wouldn't ask for spending
7:13 am
cuts because he's not going to do that. asking barack obama to not be a big spending high taxing liberal liberal, this is what we'll do we'll pass a year-long continuing resolution or national security, we'll pass a very short term continuing resolution for the department of labor, the department of housing and urban development, the department of the interior. there are dozens of places you can dramatically change spending without having to get involved in general crisis over the u.s. debt. >> mr. speaker i want to get your take on gun control, because as you know vice president biden is going to be delivering some 19 different recommendations to the president. also there is some controversy over the fact that the nra released a new itunes app that offers shooting practice and can be for children ages 4 years old plus.
7:14 am
what do you think about that? >> we're having the discussions about gun control, over 500 people were killed in chicago last year the president's hometown. vice president biden doesn't want to go there, i'm trying to get the house to hold hearings there. it's illegal to have all of the guns killing people in chicago. chicago ought to be safe. >> and the app by the nra is that appropriate? >> my understanding it's a gun safety app for young hunters to learn safety. i would ask people to watch the entire app before they pass judgment. secretary of state hillary clinton is expected to testify wednesday, visit the house foreign committee next wednesday, she was supposed to testify last month before she suffered a blood clot. over the years, coca-cola has called itself the real thing and said that coke adds life.

now the company is responding to charges that coke and other soft drinks are shortening lives by making people fat. john blackstone reports on coke's new ad campaign. >> for over 125 years -- >> reporter: in a way there's a remarkable confession in the tv ads coca-cola started running last night. the soft drink giant admits its products are part of the obesity problem, but only part of it. >> all calories count, no matter where they come from including coca-cola and everything else with calories. >> the corporate say we're good guys, here to help not here to hurt anybody. >> reporter: ira kalb is a marketing prover at the university of southern california. >> they are trying to position themselves as part of the solution, and they are part of the solution. >> reporter: they make a sugary soft drink. >> it's marketing saying you make a sugary soft drink and like everything you should drink that in moderation. >> reporter: the coca-cola
7:16 am
company said there's a conversation going on how to address obesity and we want to be part of that conversation. ♪ i'd like to teach the world to sing ♪ >> reporter: coca-cola once taught the world to sing, now the company says it wants to teach the world about health but critics say it's simply doing damage control as public concern grows. mayor michael bloomberg's successful campaign in new york city to limit soft drink serving sizes has attracted attention across the country. >> sugary drink consumption is a key driver of the obesity epidemic in the united states. >> reporter: the new coke ads also point out companies, many different brands include 180 no calorie and low calorie beverages. it wants to protect the image of the drink with the red and white label for decades has been heavily promoted more as a source of happiness than of calories. for "cbs this morning," john blackstone, los angeles.

silence, sort of when he interrupted the more flamboyant antonin scalia in which ivory league lawyers properly represented a client. the transcript only picked up four words, well if he did not -- the courtroom erupted in laughter perhaps knowing thomas has had a testy relationship with his alma mater, yale. even though the offhand remark was considered by court watchers big news. the 64-year-old justice has often said the court should do a better job of listening to the cases instead of interrupting them a stark contrast to his more vocal colleagues like scalia. in thomas' memoir he wrote he

looking into him for fraud. the u.s. postal service says he indicated he was not doing drugs in any way, shape or form. one of the best ways to force him to assess a new round of spending cuts. >> asking barack obama not to be a big spending high-tax liberal is a denial of everything we've learned about him in his career. coca-cola is responding to charges that it and other soft drink makers are making people fat. talking for the first time about being abused in a mexican jail. >> i understood you were handcuffed? >> i was chained to the bed by my foot. i talked with justice thomas about his silence, and he's been critical of his colleagues for what he says talking too much. here's one way of fishing without a rod, flipped back into the water and eventually got away. >> one thing you don't want to do with your hand is put it in a fish's mouth that's that big.
8:01 am
>> poles of wisdom from charlie rose. news you can use. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. lance armstrong admits to using performance enhancing drugs after denying it for more than a decade. the justice department reports it's likely to join a lawsuit against armstrong to recover government funding. >> accused of seven-time tour de france winner of running the most successful dopeing program in sports history. agency ceo travis tiger told "60 minutes" last week that armstrong threatened anyone who challenged him. >> reporter: your investigation showed that there were personal threats made against riders who had decided to come clean. i wonder if there were any threats against you. >> there were scott. >> reporter: these threats came from where? >> e-mails, letters.
8:02 am
>> reporter: anonymous. >> yeah. >> reporter: can you remember any of the lies from the e-mails, the letters? >> the worst was probably putting a bullet in my head. >> reporter: did you take that seriously? >> absolutely. turned it over to the fbi to investigate it, which they're doing. >> armstrong addressed the doping charges in a no-holds-barred interview with oprah winfrey on monday. she joins us now live from harpo studios in chicago. oprah, good morning to you. >> hey gayle. >> hey. >> hey, charlie, hey, norah. >> we are all excited to talk to you, oprah. let's get started. he has denied for so long and so adamantly that he did not do this. do you think that it was difficult for him to finally come clean to you? >> yes i think the entire interview was difficult. and may i just say that we had
8:03 am
agreed before this moment before the interview, we had agreed that the terms of the interview and what was included in the interview, specifically what was included in the interview would be left for people to make their own judgments about and that i would not be discussing or he would not be discussing or confirming. we agreed to that. and then by the time i left austin and landed in chicago, you all had already confirmed it. so i'm like how did you all do that some we all agreed that we weren't going to say anything. so i'm sitting here now because it's already been confirmed. so here we are. >> so this question. you prepared hard for this. both to get the interview and then to conduct the interview. why do you think he did it? what was he looking to do? and did he confess that he'd come clean in a manner that you expected? >> i would say he did not come
8:04 am
clean in the manner that i expected. it was surprising to me. i would say that for myself, my team, all of us in the room, we were mesmerized and riveted by some of his answers. i had prepared. i had read the reasoned decision. i had watched all of scott pelley's reports, "60 minutes" reports, the tyler hamilton interview. i had read "seven deadly sins." i read "l.a. confidential," david walsh's book i prepared like it was a college exam and walked into the room with 112 questions. and in a 2 1/2-hour interview, i asked most of those questions, or at least as many of those questions as i could, but i feel that he answered the questions in a way that he was ready. i didn't get all the questions asked, but i think the most
8:05 am
important questions and the answers that people around the world had been waiting to hear were answered and certainly answered -- i can only say i was satisfied by the answers. >> would you characterize him as contrite? >> you know what charlie? i choose not to characterize. i would rather people make their own decisions about whether he was contrite or not. i felt that he was thoughtful. i thought that he was serious. i thought that he certainly had prepared himself for this moment. i would say that he met the moment. and at the end of it 2 1/2 -- literally 2 1/2 hours, we both were pretty exhausted. i would say i was satisfied. >> many people say, though oprah, you know before he did the interview, there was a lot of talk that you were chosen because you would not go deep. you would not go hard.
8:06 am
did you have a strategy going in for how you would talk to him? >> oh, yeah. we had a strategy and pretty much followed that strategy certainly in the first hour and 20 minutes of the interview. and about an hour and 20 minutes in, we took a break. ad lance actually said uh will there be a point where you'll lighten up? what about the questions about my mom and how was my run today? so yeah. i was prepared with a strategy but because he was so forthcoming, i think i went in prepared to have to dig and pull and reference because i was literally in my head on page 76 of the reasoned decision, if he says this then i'll go to that. and if he says this answer i'll go to "seven deadly sins," page 114. i didn't have to do that because
8:07 am
he was pretty forthcoming. >> oprah, i'm excited about seeing the entire interview. i don't know how you're going to cut down the whole 2 1/2 hours because it sounds like there's a lot in there. but why do you think he wanted to do this now? what kind of pressure is he under? >> well i'm just writing down i'm not going to cut down the 2 1/2 hours. as a matter of fact, i wanted to tell you guys we have decided literally on the plane last night on the way back because i didn't want to satellite the tapes, i didn't trust putting it up on the bird so i hand carried them in my bag along with my dog food and dog leashes back to harpo. we've decided that we are actually going to go for two nights because impossible to try to cut 80 minutes out. as you all know a 90-minute interview on tv is really only 65 minutes. and so we felt that to leave over half of this on the cutting room floor after millions of people have been waiting for years for many of these answers would not be the right thing to
8:08 am
do. >> and then that's very interesting. and so why do you think, oprah, that he wanted to do this? >> because oprah, it came together in really a week's time. that's what's so fascinating. please tell people how you got this interview. >> okay. to answer norah's question i asked that question and i'm not sure i still have the answer to that question. why he wanted to do it now. i specifically asked that question. i think he was just -- he was just ready. i think the velocity of everything that's come at him in the past several months and particularly in the past several weeks, he was just ready. how i got the interview, i had sent him an e-mail a couple of months ago just you know hoping that he would talk to me. he e-mailed back and said he wasn't ready to talk but that he would be in hawaii over the holidays. and he knew that i had a place in hawaii and maybe we could get together for lunch. okay. right. that's going to happen, i thought. so sure, we're going to get together for lunch.
8:09 am
during the holidays i e-mailed and said, what about that lunch? it turns out he said i can't do it on these days the days that i was available, because he had his kids. i had a bunch of my kids' girls from my school in africa with me. i stayed over an extra two days in order to accommodate his schedule. and he came to visit me in maui. he lives on another island. so he flew over. >> and oprah, you should say -- >> operation -- >> i was going to say, you cleared out the house. >> cleared out the house. i had guests in the house. everybody has to leave. go to the beach, go to the beach, go to the beach now! and stay there for at least four hours! so i had nobody in the house including, you know people who usually are there for help and, you know even the people who do the lawn i removed all those people, had the person to go to the airport that normally doesn't pick me up at the airport so that he wouldn't be recognized as being connected to me. i did all of that. lance comes and says, where's everybody? i sent everybody away.
8:10 am
he said, but you didn't clear the road? there was a biker on the road. >> i, too, sent him a telegram an e-mail by the way. he answered yours. so back to this question of this man. how was he different than you expected if at all? and what's your takeaway from this? where do you put this in career of extraordinary interviews? >> well how was he different? i'll let you be the judge of that. in terms of my career i think it's certainly the biggest interview i've ever done in terms of its exposure. i think back in 1993 of course i did michael jackson live around the world. this is going to be live streamed around the world as well as on own. if you can't find own on your station, you should go to we have a channel finder there for people who are still trying to find it.
8:11 am
but because it's going to be around the world and we believe that it should be around the world because so many people who don't have access to the own channel wanted to hear what he had to say. and i think the number of people who have exposure to it makes it the biggest interview i've ever done. >> it's being described as an emotional interview. what does that mean? >> emotional. for me or for him? >> for lance. it's being described as an emotional interview for him. >> well i would say there were a couple of times where he was emotional, but emotional doesn't begin to describe the intensity or the difficulty that i think that he experienced in talking about some of these things. i would say, you know all the people who are wondering if he actually goes there and answers -- to answer your question that you asked earlier, charlie, i think charlie and norah and gayle, i think that
8:12 am
you will come away too, understanding that he brought it. he really did. >> who was in the room and what was their reaction to the interview? >> he had a team of people. you know he was surrounded by his -- we did not allow the lawyers in the room. i had said to the lawyers that if you have something to say, that you you know want to disagree with or have an issue with you have to make that issue after i'm done and not come in and interrupt. when we finish nobody had any issues. >> this is an extraordinary thing because you look at a man who is now having to come forward and say, i've been lying to you for a long long time. not only did i do something that was wrong for me but it was wrong in what i did to everybody that liked me and loved me. and i've also in a sense, raised questions about my career. oprah, you and i have interviewed him a number of times, and people have characterized him, and you may have as a role model because of
8:13 am
he overcame testicular cancer and he seemed to be somebody that had remarkable athletic skills. and then he steps forward in the full glare of the world because of you, you know and has to acknowledge, i have no clothes. >> well, i think you're going to hear all of that. i think you will be again, the word i keep using is satisfied. i think you will hear all of that. >> all right oprah, thanks. really good to see you. >> may i say this before you all go? i know the time thing. >> hurry >> hurry up. >> this is big for my career but i have to say making the eye-opener equally as big. >> we'll give you time to say that. thank you, oprah. good job. >> i was in the "eye opener"! >> i can't wait to see thursday. thanks. thank you very much. >> thanks. >> you can watch oprah's worldwide exclusive interview with lance armstrong thursday and friday night on the own network. check your local listing. it's a big deal to be
8:14 am
and we will be right back. i woke up with this horrible rash on my right side. an intense burning sensation like somebody had set it on fire. and the doctor said, cindie, you have shingles. he said, you had chickenpox when you were a little girl... i said, yes, i did. i don't think anybody ever thinks they're going to get shingles. but it happened to me.

8:32 am
paychecks every year. jill schlessinger is editor at large for cbs' "money watch." what does this mean for the average person? people are starting to feel it, how much less money is in t in your pay sdmekcheck? >> when you look at the paycheck you'll have a bummed out reaction. $18 to $20 less if you make $50,000 or less it does matter. >> what exactly -- start us off with what is a payroll tax, what is it, what does it do? what's it for? >> it basically pays for social security benefits. and so there are two components. hour component employees, we pay 6.2% your employer pays 6.2%, as well. a couple years ago when the economy was really fragile, one of the ways to stimulate the economy was to lower the payroll tax for employees. so it went from 6.2% of your earnings down to 4.2%.
8:33 am
that was awesome. it helped you get a little bit more money in your paycheck right? unfortunately, sadly now we're back at 6.2%. it was not extended as part of the fiscal cliff negotiations. >> it's interesting the footlocker chief executive, ken hicks, said that this payroll tax increase actually takes money out of the pockets of consumers. and so how do you think in general, what are economists saying about how it may affect consumer spending? >> a lot of the economists i talk to all the time were up in arms about this because they think that this payroll tax cut was a great form of stimulus. and now the resumption of that 6.2% number means we're probably going shave about a half a percent off our growth rate this year. you think, oh a half a percent, not a big deal. we're only growing by 2% a year so it is a big deal. >> in the beginning when you said between $18 and $20 less a week, it doesn't seem like much. but you also say it matters. why does that small number matter? >> that matters because it could
8:34 am
be the difference continue you making enough money, $1,000 over the course of the year to really pay your bills. it also could be the amount that you needed to put into your retirement account. it could be the amount you needed to pay down your credit card debt. this is a very important number for families especially those living on the edge. i got to remind everyone, you're one of the 160 million people who work your taxes have gone up this year. >> anything we can do with our withholdings to increase the cash flow? >> you know, if you get a big tax refund the funny thing is everybody gets psyched, i got a great big tax refund. guess what you just gave a loan to your uncle sam interest free. so you know what, if you got a big tax refund, you may want to adjust your withholding, it can help your cash flow. and really important, there are tax credits that were extended as part of the fiscal cliff deal. this could help a lot of low to mid income taxpayers defray that increase in payroll taxes. pay attention at tax time. you will find some money. >> good to see you. thank you very much. >> great to be with you.
8:35 am
>> still think it's worth getting excited when you get a big tax refund, jill. don't be a buzz kill. >> wait a second. >> don't be a buzz kill. >> when you give interest-free loans -- >> i hear you. we'll hand it over to charlie. >> we want now to show you some performers who are turning the world of modern dance on its side. they do much of their dancing on skyscrapers and cliffs wearing rockclimbing gear. a lesson in their unique art. >> reporter: these are dancers who clearly believe that all the world's a stage. from colorful cathedrals to the broadside of office buildings, all they ask of the audience is a simple change in perspective. >> like oh, i thought this only went like this, but what if i think about it like this. >> reporter: they call themselves bandalus. a troupe that takes dance, turns it on its head, and then puts on
8:36 am
walls all over the world. >> people expect trickery they expect a circusy thing. and that's not what they get. they get dance in a totally different environment. >> reporter: the group began in a totally different environment 22 years ago with founder emilia rudolph. where did the idea come from? what was the genesis of this? >> one day clinging to a cliff in the sierra looking out at the vast view, i asked this question -- what would it be like to dance here? what would that mean? >>. >> reporter: it meant combining amelia's love of dance -- >> you open it as awe step back. >> reporter: with her then-boyfriend peter mayfield's passion for rock climbing. >> we eastern were connecting around how rock climbing and dance were very similar. >> double double, double two loops. >> reporter: for 22 years now, they have used the tools of rock

morning." three new nutrition studies focus on foods that may help us stay healthy, get smarter, or make us eat too much. let's look at this with dr. lou aroni, director of the comprehensive weight control program at new york presbyterian hospital and weil cornell medical center. before that, nora when he sat down, remember he gave us 50 lashes with a wet noodle, what did you say when you sat down? >> why don't you get your flu shot? >> because you -- there's that old wivesle that if you get the -- wives tale that if you get the shot you get the flu. you said -- >> it's very mild. it's much better than having the flu. if you've seen anyone with the flu lately, it's really bad. get your flu shot. >> superfoods can help protect you against getting diseases though, not necessarily the flu. >> right. >> i'm actually someone just -- i google superfoods all the time. i'm one of these people obsessed with this. i eat lots of blueberries. this study has incredible findings about blue betters and strawberries, how -- blueberries and strawberries, how they can save your life really. >> what this study shows is that in young and middle aged women,
8:45 am
that the consumption of blueberries and strawberries protected them from having heart attacks. and the news about this is that we're actually seeing that it protects against real diseases. it's not something that's very vague. we're seeing real longevity from eating brightly colored foods. and you know, we -- woee know eat your fruits and vegetables, what are best? blueberries, strawberries, any bright darkly colored food is a good target. >> what's the definition of middle aged in this case? what makes berries so healthy? >> the thing that makes berries so healthy are the brightly colored chemicals that are in them. so -- >> flavanoids? >> flavanoids and other kinds of chemicals that we see eggplants have them, other kinds of foods that are purple and red have them. middle age sudden women up to

fructose there was a lack of a change in blood flow in parts of the brain that control fullness. and as a result, we think that this is part of the explanation for why high fructose containing products may be associated with more obesity. >> eat your berries. eat your rainbow. >> that's right. >> doctor, thank you very much. we'll be right back. i'm in london. i'll have the story on why the great british butler is making a great comeback. tomorrow on "cbs this morning."
